Lions Club gives Burnham-On-Sea Youth Centre a fresh lick of paint

Burnham-On-Sea's youth centre has been given a fresh splash of colour thanks to the efforts of a group of volunteers from the town's Lions Club.

Five members donned overalls on Saturday (January 24th) to give the BAY Centre in Cassis Close a new lick of paint in readiness for the upcoming opening of its new youth cafe.

"When we heard about the plans for a youth cafe, we offered our help because it's in line with our policy of helping young people," Lions Chairman Andrew Bryant explained to

"We offered a financial contribution but it was agreed that some volunteer time in painting the new cafe and kitchen area would more useful."

"The children chose the paint - a very colourful lime green and purple - and we did the rest. It was a fun atmosphere and work like this makes the Lions Club enjoyable."

PC Tracey Stiles added: "The whole community have been pulling together to get the Youth Cafe up and running for young people in the area to enjoy."

""We are currently using funds to buy furniture and games and hope to open the cafe with a launch event late February."

"The cafe will be an invaluable facility for young people in Burnham, giving them somewhere to spend time with their friends and have some fun in a supervised environment."
